Teacher Formation

"An accompanier and educator of those who are entrusted to him by the Church; the catechist is an expert in the art of accompaniment, has educational expertise, is able to listen and enter into the dynamics of human growth, becomes a traveling companion with patience and a sense of gradualness, in docility to the action of the Holy Spirit and through a process of formation helps his brothers to mature in the Christian life and journey toward God." (Directory for Catechesis, 74)
